Radon Testing

Radon is a colorless, odorless gas emitted into the air by the radioactive element, radium, as it breaks down in soil, rock, and water. Typically, radon penetrates buildings through small cracks or openings in foundations undetected. And, once radon has entered a property, the radon may be trapped inside.

Since testing is the only way to determine a home’s radon levels, the EPA and Surgeon General recommend that home buyers, sellers, and remodelers test all homes below the third floor. If consumers discover elevated radon levels of four picocuries per liter (4 pCi/L) or higher—which the EPA estimates that nearly one in every 15 households do—then the EPA urges them to take corrective measures, including the installation of a radon-reduction system.

Following national protocols, Bateman Home Inspections offers radon measurements performed for a minimum 48 hours utilizing advanced CRM (Continuous Radon Monitor) devices to identify if an elevated radon level is likely.
